Enjoy Security and Efficacy instead: Therapy Adherence 4.0
The digital blockchain-based therapy management system for the medical practice
How an App makes a successful system more user friendly, more efficient and more reliable and manages to annul the entire adherence problem.
Ruma GmbH specializes in adherence support in the field of addiction therapy.
The patented Ruma Marker-System replaces the degrading direct observation of urine sample collection with marker substances. They allow the reliable matching of sample and sample donor.
Our extensive experience in this field serves as the ideal prerequisite to match the analog process to its digital counterpart.
We have transferred this analog process chain into the digital world by representing the individual marker substance as a digital twin in a private blockchain.
Now the digital twin documents the path of the substance from production to distribution to the physician, to the patient taking the substance, to validation of the urine sample by the lab, and finally to billing.

Dedicated to this new field of application, we developed a new form of administration for the tried and tested Ruma Markers - the Ruma Capsule!
Clean, easy to apply, and ready to use without further preparation.
Multilayered security features on secondary and primay packaging are verified by the app to protect against substitution of the individually marked capsule.
To do so, we are using the guidelines and recommendations of the EU Falsified Medicines Directive 2011/62/EU in order to integrate the Ruma Marker-System even more smoothly into the health care system.
The capsule itself contains, in addition to the marker substances themselves ,a blue dye that performs the job of the sugar with the liquid markers: the capsule dissolves in the mouth if not swallowed in a timely manner, releasing the dye and coloring the oral cavity blue. This way, attempts to not actually swallow the capsule become immediately and reliably visible.
Wir haben die neue Darreichungsform wissenschaftlich überprüfen lassen. Die Studie zur Ausscheidungskinetik belegt, dass auch hier die Marker zu 100% im Labor detektiert werden. Die Wartezeit bis zur Abgabe der Urinprobe beträgt für die Kapsel 60 Minuten.
Die vollständigen Studienergebnisse können Sie hier herunterladen. We had the new form of administration tested in a scientific study. This study on excretion kinetics demonstrates that this form as well has a laboratory detection rate of 100%. Using the capsule the waiting period until the urine sample can be collected is 60 minutes.
You can download the complete results of the study here.
Convenient and Location-Independent
Whether at home or on the go - App and capsule can be used any time. In total privacy. Visiting your health care provider is only necessary to create the initial link between sample collector and sample donor.
Why Blockchain in a Medical App?
We use blockchain technology to ensure secure data transfer. It is the carrier of all information:
- regarding the samples and their life cycle
- regarding the sample donors
- regarding sample collectors and their respective facilities
Plus, the history of the data is stored in their "life cycle" including all changes, administrative activities and protocols.
Every change can be traced back to a specific user so that these data are unforgeable and unchangeable. Data storage on the blockchain is audit-proof.
The Consultation that doesn‘t require an Appointment.
The physician can check the digital recording of the patient's marker intake at his or her convenience. No need for trips to the medical office or waiting times. But instead more freedom for optimized office procedures.
After the intake process has been recorded the sample collector is notified accordingly.
He or she can now watch and check the video. The video is assessed by means of a defined scale that differentiates between „Successful Intake“ "Failed Attempt" or „Manipulation Attempt“.
